11 of the most Irish things to ever happen in the sunshine

WHEN THE SUN is out, we are a country transformed.

We really show our creative side and our unique ability as a nation to adapt to any situation. And we have proof:

10. That time a dog decided to close a shop so everyone could go to the beach

And moving swiftly away from the sun straight after helps.

Ireland in the sun – we love you.
